Love potions and fairies come to Ponderosa High School in the drama department’s presentation of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
The play tells of love gone amuck when Puck, a servant to King Oberon, gives unsuspecting subjects a love potion while they sleep — with hilarious results.
The play tells of the conflict between love and social convention and offers a peek into the plot of “Romeo and Juliet” in the play-within-the play of ”Pyramus and Thisbe.”
After a lot of misdirected interaction true love does win out and the audience will enjoy the journey to a very happy ending.
